The right car seat is needed, along with proper installation, to ensure a child is protected at all times, announces HappyBabyReviews.com
— According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, 99 percent of children under the age of one use a car seat when riding in a motor vehicle, with 87 percent between the ages of one and eight being restrained in a device of this type. Sadly, motor-vehicle crashes continue to be the leading cause of death for children between the ages of three and 14.
"This may be partially due to the fact that 76 percent of child safety seats are used improperly, and many parents fail to understand what they need to look for when purchasing a seat for their child. Happy Baby Reviews wishes to change this and has launched a site dedicated to this goal," Julie Schumaker, spokesperson for Happy Baby Reviews, states.
SafetySeatSolutions.org reports head injuries are common among all groups, although children are more likely to suffer from unconsciousness or a concussion if they are under the age of one. Those one and older tend to be more susceptible to a skull fracture, and all age groups are prone to spleen and liver injuries. Spinal injuries are commonly witnessed in those under the age of one also, as are rib fractures.
"Parents need to ensure the seat they choose meets the needs of their child, as children differ greatly in many respects. The weight range of the seat must be factored into the decision making process, together with other variables, such as the support provided," Schumaker continues.
Installation of the car seat also plays a role in its effectiveness. For this reason, many parents now choose models featuring the ClickTight installation offering. This particular feature is found on several Britax car seat models and is covered on the Happy Baby Reviews site.
"Car seat installation remains a problem for countless parents. With three out of four seats now being used incorrectly, this needs to be a major concern for all. The site provides information on the installation method of many seats to help with the decision making process," Schumaker goes on to say.
Happy Baby Reviews provides car seat reviews, allowing parents to compare numerous models in a short period of time. In addition, they offer a car seat finder to simplify the process. Parents can search by price, user rating and more.
"The site continues to expand to make certain parents have information they need at their fingertips. Check it out today. Parents need to protect their child in any way possible, and the right car set goes a long way to ensuring they achieve this goal," Schumaker declares.
